He's Angel, but he's not Dark Angel

I've walked past the poster advertising the movie, Serenity, every day for weeks now. But only this afternoon did I notice that underneath the movie title are the words "...from the creator of Buffy and Dark Angel" Eh?! Dark Angel?!

It must be a local faux pas, because the version I found on the Internet was gaff-free.

Did New Zealand get the first draft copies of the poster or something? Has anyone else noticed?

Dark Angel was a tv series which I avoided watching because it smacked of jumping on the Buffy bandwagon. But it must be better known here than Angel.

I'm just surprised that whoever did the poster got it so wrong.

I think Dark Angel was James King-Of-The-World Cameron's show. Like a futuristic Alias.
Ah, the days when I watched TV

No, two seperate things are Angel/Dark Angel. I think you should repost it to a superfan they'll fix it!

It's kinda too late to fix it now, since the movie has been out for months now. But it's just so wrong to get a Whedon show mixed up with something entirely different and inferior!!
